Intiwawa niños del sol

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: December 1, 2013, 9:37 AM


INTIWAWA is a young non-governmental organization that is located in Arequipa/Peru as well as Emsdetten/Germany. The name IntiWawa is Quechua and means "Children of the Sun". Volunteers teach English and computer classes, do after school projects, help in kindergarden, intercultural projects, food projects, (dental)health projects, women's handcraft workshop... We recently build a house in the small village which serves as a community center.

The primary goal of our organization is to help young men and woman and –together with them- improve their everyday situation. At this point we mainly work in San Isidro, a small village of about 90 families, located approximately 45 minutes from the City-Centre of Arequipa.

The inhabitants of this village suffer from malnutrition, lack of education, alcoholism and domestic violence. Missing sanitary arrangements and unclean water lead to diseases caused by the lack of hygiene. Furthermore, there is a constant shortage of financial capacity to afford basic human requirements such as medicine or a proper water supply system.

The aim of IntiWawa is to fight existing problems, as well as research and fight the root causes of these problems, in order to prevent their development in the first place.

To achieve these goals, we need as much support as we can get from motivated and energetic voluntary workers as well as financial support to carry out our projects.
